it remarkable. during the briefing today. we're awaiting on the f.b.i. in a couple of minutes. the briefing earlier today when they appealed at least half a dozen times, openly and publicly for the public's help. if you have a picture, if you you have video. they wanted to talk to you. if you have seen anything, they wanted your information. i thought it was telling because they were so public and outward with this. they were at the airport at logan international asking people that had flown on the race to show it to police before they got on the planes. >> bob: can you give us an update on the saudi student and they looked in his apartment and there was an interview by his roommate. they were in there for four or five hours. do you anything more about that? >> reporter: i can tell you this. he is not a suspect. he is 20 years old from saudi arabia near meca. he is here studying english. he was living in a suburb and he was in the hospital with burns. he cave consent for police to go into his apartment. they did and came out 2:00 in the morning with large bags of evidence, but we don't beli
exploded yesterday at the world's premiere marathon. the f.b.i. appealed to the public came this evening. the agent in charge, richard deslauriers asked the public for leads and photographs and summed up the investigation this way. >> at this time, there are no claims of responsibility. the range of suspects and motives remains wide open. >> pelley: investigators say this was one of the most photographed areas in the country yesterday. but did anyone capture the image of the person or persons who planted the bombs that killed at least three people and wounded more than 170 including spectator leann yawny. >> i'm alive. and being so close to the blast, you know, it could have turned out way worse. >> pelley: she was one of the lucky ones. 27 of the wounded remain in critical condition this evening. among the dead, eight-year-old martin richard of dorchester, massachusetts. and late today another of those killed was identified. 29-year-old krystle campbell of medfordford. we've also learned more about the two bombs planted near the finish line. they were filled with nails and ball bearings
director of the f.b.i. is with us. john, what have you been learning? >> well, they're looking very hard at that piece of closed circuit television security camera video. they've gotten a individual who they're interested in because he's carrying two backpacks. now you know how early it is and how information will shift and change and that's an important caveat but when you have two devices possibly contained in backpacks and you have an image of somebody moving before that carrying two backpacks that could be someone who's got his backpack and one he's carrying for another runner or that could be a suspect. so what they're doing now between the f.b.i. and boston police department is they're looking at his direction of travel. the shot that they have of him is not really identifiable. it's from behind. so they're scoping out the network of cctv cameras trying to figure out from the direction he's coming from what other cameras would he have passd? can they identify the same individual this time from the front wand a face. and then based on that look and whatever other cameras they can se

and was recovered by police. but there is conflicting information about that tonight. the f.b.i. has taken the lead role in the investigation. there has been no climb of responsibility and there was no warning. president obama vowed to find and bring to justice whoever is responsible. jonathan elias of our cbs boston station wbz was there on boylston street when the bombs went off. jonathan? >> scott, i was 30 feet away from that initial blast and we were filming people coming across the finish line for what should have been an end of a jubilant race. i mean, they were ecstatic. people were raising their arms up in the air, my producer, my photographer, myself, we are high-fiving these guys and just cheering them on and then a second later the bomb went off. when that first bomb went off we held our ground not knowing what had just happened and then seconds later the second bomb went off and that's when we knew exactly what was going on. we ran toward the scene of the initial blast as everyone else was running away trying to get out and off of boylston street. police officers down the street were h
-new details in the f.b.i.'s investigation. first let's go downtown in boston. >> the sun is just beginning to rise over the city of boston, a much different city, a quiet city this morning, almost eerie to see boylston street behind me and this morning it still looks like a marathon happened here yesterday. streets are still a mess, papers are everywhere. that area is in lockdown. the business district not reopening today. that remains a crime scene as a terrorist investigation continues right now here on the streets of boston. this event happened just a little bit before 3:00 yesterday afternoon. that's when really the height of the marathon, the elite runners had long since finished about two hours earlier. so the people that were crossing the finish line were many of them charity runners, were here to raise money for leukemia, for the liver foundation, for all the various things that people raise money for in the course of the 26 miles, plus they're running. as they were crossing the finish line, it was family members that were waiting there at the finish lines. so the area was packed w

and more than 100 are injured and police and the f.b.i. investigating right now and we will bring you the latest coming up. >> in fact, in a few hours the f.b.i. is expected to hold a briefing into the bombings at the boston marathon. agents searched an apartment in the town of revere near boston but will not say what they are looking for or how the home is connected to the investigation. so far they don't have anyone in custody for the attack but the f.b.i. is tracking several "person of interest" after two bombs went off at the boston marathon finish line killing two people including an 8-year-old boy. the child has been identified this morning as martin richard, officials say up to two unexploded bombs were also found near the marathon course but therapy safely disarmed. again, we are just getting word that the f.b.i. briefing is at 6:30 our time so in less than two hours. >> boston's logan airport is open after shutting down for a time after the blast. air travelers tell abc7 news reporter there is more tension on plights now than before the bombs went off. >> travelers would flew
the search is connected to the boston marathon explosions. the f-b-i is leading the investigation. here is what we know right now. police say, at least three people were killed in the blasts -- one victim, an eight year old boy. more than 140 others were injured. the explosions were about a block apart - and happened within seconds of each other. some victims lost limbs, suffered broken bones, shrapnel wounds and ruptured eardrums. of those hurt, officials say, at least 15 are in critical condition. police have no suspects in custody. however, police are searching an apartment in a boston suburb. in connection to the deadly blasts. officials in washington say, there has been no immediate claim of responsibility -- but the attack is being treated as an act of terrorism. what's still not clear is whether it is a domestic or foreign act. kron4's grant lodes takes a closer look at the pair of explosions near the boston maraton finish line. the amount tonight, a dramatic video of the first explosion. tonight, this was filmed by a boston globe a photographer and let me warn you that some of t

was announced moments ago. the f.b.i. is planning a news conference at 2:00 our time this afternoon. investigators found the lid of a pressure cooker, a possible critical part of evidence in the boston marathon attack. law enforcement officials released these pictures, the new pictures of potential bomb parts including wiring and a circuit board. they believe the lid of the pressure cooker was flying to a nearby building. our reporter is live in boston with the latest. >> hello from boston. a massachusetts official tells abc7 news that authorities believe they have identified a suspect in the bombings. it is reported that is suspect has been arrested but that is not confirmed by abc7 news. it is also reported that surveillance video helped lead authorities to the suspect. >> investigators believe these are the remains of the crude explosive device used in the bombing, a pressure cooker packed with nails and ball bearings. >> this is a similar device to the i.e.d.'s we found throughout afghanistan used to kill our soldiers. >> it was made by a company called fager for maximal damage.
iraq, just like the murrah building in oklahoma city. >> brown: then, the f.b.i. released photos of two suspects in the boston bombings. we update the investigation, as the president and first lady attend a prayer service in the city to mourn the victims and offer words of hope. >> even when our heart aches, we summon the strength that maybe we didn't even know we had. and we carry on; we finish the race. >> suarez: hari sreenivasan reports on the increased use of drones here at home, amid growing concerns about privacy and their use down the road. >> brown: a new path to citizenship for the country's 11 million un-documented immigrants was unveiled today by a bi- partisan group of senators. margaret warner talks to one of them, dick durbin of illinois. >> suarez: and we sit down with the head of the world bank, jim yong kim, about his new push to tackle extreme poverty around the globe. >> brown: that's all ahead on tonight's "newshour." >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: ♪ ♪ moving our economy for 160 years. bnsf, the engine that connects us. >> and by th

marathon. i've spoken to f.b.i. director muller and secretary of homeland security and they're mobilizing the appropriate resources to investigate and to respond. i've updated leaders of congress in both parties and we reaffirmed on days like this that there are no republicans or democrats. we're americans. >>> i've always spoken with the governor and the mayor and made it clear that they have every single federal resource necessary to care for the victims and counsel the fanl families. boston police, firefighters and first responders, as well as the national guard responded heroically and continue to do so as we speak. it's a reminder that so many americans serve and sacrifice on our behalf every single day without regard to their own safety in dangerous and difficult circumstances. and we salute all of those who assisted in responding so quickly and professionally to this tragedy. >>> we still do not know who did this. or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all of the facts. but make no mistake. we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did thi
of the suspected bomber. the f.b.i. is examining photographs including some taken at a lord&taylor store showing a man near the finish line with a cell phone and a black back across his chest. if the f.b.i. has a face from the video at the lord & taylor or from local division, they may be able to use facial recognition software so run the face against databases. >> in addition to video and foes the tech agents are examining debris in the remains of a pressure cooker recovered at the crime scene. >> they can identify the items down to, perhaps, the type of bag, the type of axle rapt, the type of detonator, all that becomes extremely important in a trial if you can match those items to a particular suspect. >> in addition to speaking of the victim, president obama will talk about the first responders and the heroes. >> the 11-year-old martinez boy injured in the bombings is recovering from more surgery. aaron hern suffered a deep thigh wound and other injuries while watching his mom finish the marathon. she says his surgery went well and no skin grafts were needed. the family is getting support fr
taken to court. but the f.b.i. shot down claims that anyone was in custody, and it issued a statement that said, in part: the bureau also put off an afternoon briefing, citing a bomb scare that forced everybody out of the courthouse. earlier, the f.b.i. released photos of remnants of the bombs made out of pressure cookers and the black nylon bags that concealed them. one of the pressure cooker lids was catapulted to a nearby rooftop. and investigators kept sifting the crime scene for more clues today. all three people killed in the bombings have now been identified-- eight-year old martin richard, 29-year-old krystle campbell and lu lingzi, a chinese graduate student at boston university. last night, neighbors and friends of martin richard and his family held a candlelight vigil near a baseball diamond and field where he used to play. >> everybody knows them, everybody loves them. it's just unthinkable, you know, anybody's little boy, was our little boy. >> reporter: boston common was the site of another vigil last night. several hundred turned out to sing and pay tribute to those k
they discovered unexploded and defused. john miller, former assistant director of the f.b.i. is our senior correspondent. you have been talking to your law enforcement sources all afternoon. john, what do you know? >> well, there is an individual who who is in custody. now, i want to proceed very carefully from here on out. he's in custody, which means he's not free to go. he's not under arrest, he's not charged. he is a saudi national who was near the scene of the blast when the blast happened he began to run. now, in context, a lot of people began to run. a civilian who thought this individual was acting suspiciously chased him down and tackled him and then turned him over to boston police saying "i saw this guy hanging around over there acting suspiciously and then he ran." that may mean a lot; it may mean nothing at all. but authorities that i've spoken to, sources who are being briefed on this say he's being fully cooperative, he's denying any involvement in this act. >> pelley: so this has been three hours that this has happened. a lot of things are going to be thrown out the window
